Monogamy has been the status quo for a very long time and it is refreshing to see alternatives becoming more acceptable. But I feel that monogamy has gotten a bad name and as a sex blogger, I sometimes feel a bit silly for being monogamous. But my husband and I have been exclusive for 20 years (married for 16) and I don’t recognise our relationship in the staid picture of monogamy that the media usually portrays.

Another week has come and gone, time flies these days. In keeping with the #SOSS hashtag, here is another round up of blog posts I found interesting this week. I have decided to also share links to other people I find interesting (Twitter or their personal website), because I don’t like to limit myself to blogs only. I just want to share shit in general (the hashtag is Share our Shit, not Share our Blog Posts after all). Continue reading “Share our Shit Saturday: What I enjoyed reading this week”
A while ago I was sat on the couch, reading a book, minding my own business. My 8 year old son sat next to me, poked me in the stomach and said, ‘You need to lose weight, you are fat.’
I was aghast. Aside from the fact that, while I have gained a bit more weight in the last year, I am by no means fat, it’s not his place to say I need to lose weight. And so I told him that he was being judgemental and I didn’t need to lose weight.

My blog is turning one, I can’t believe it! It doesn’t seem like I have been blogging about sex for a year, but it appears to be the case. I have grown a lot in the last year, both as a sex blogger and as an individual, and I am so grateful for all the other sex bloggers out there who helped me find my feet, consoled me when my website went down and I lost a LOT of blog posts, and made me feel welcome in the sex blogging community.

It is becoming increasingly difficult to find a platform for sex bloggers. Twitter has started to shadowban sex bloggers, Facebook has always banned anything related to sex and other social media platforms are equally squeamish when it comes to sex. Continue reading “Share Our Shit Saturday: What I enjoyed reading this week”
Today I want to talk about slut shaming. There is so much I would like to say on the subject that it is going to be difficult to distill it down into a single blog post, but I will try anyhow. Continue reading “Stop slut shaming”
About a week and a half ago, on 19 October, I attended a class at Sh! Women Store. I had planned to attend a class earlier in the year, but never got round to do it. This time, I was in London for work anyway, so I had no excuse not to go. Continue reading “I took a class at Sh! Women Store and it was awesome”
I received the So Divine Ooh La La Flower Vibrator (hereafter referred to as the So Divine Flower Vibrator) from my friend and fellow blogger Luv Bunny. If you remember, she is the one who also sent me the So Divine Thinkin’ Bout You Vibrating Bullet for review as well. Continue reading “Sex toy review: So Divine Ooh La La Flower Vibrator”
I recently became involved in the #iTalkSex campaign run by the Scarlet Ladies. They hosted a kick off evening with a life feed on Twitter on 15 September where women shared their stories about why they talk sex. I posted a few comments, but wanted to say a lot more on the subject, so here we are. Continue reading “#iTalkSex Why I talk sex”
I love wearing high heels. Not so much when I am out and about shopping, for example, or walking home, but when I am in the office or the rare occasion I am going out, I like to put on a high, preferably strappy, heel. I love the way heels give me confidence and I love how much taller I am in them (I am a shorty without heels). My manager, who prefers practical, low heeled shoes, once commented on my choice of footwear.
‘I would never wear heels like that in the office,’ she said. ‘There is just no one at work I feel the need to impress.’ Continue reading “Not everything women do is for the benefit of men”
